    How Do I Remove OneDrive Folder From Win10 "Move Items" Box


    This is my first post and I apologize if this has been answered before but I cannot find it anywhere on the web whatsoever. Everything points to removing from the Navigation Pane but that's not what I need. I uninstalled OneDrive through Microsoft's correct way of doing so but I can't get rid of the OneDrive "folder" in the two areas you can see in the screenshot. Thanks, I hope someone can help.

    I looked through as many as those as I could before posting. Maybe I missed it, but all I can ever find through Google is how to remove the OneDrive icon from the navigation pane, but never the folders that I've shown in my post. Google is finicky as heck - if you use certain words (which often there's no way around those words) you'll just bring up a thousand pages of the same answers. I'll look through those again tomorrow, thanks.

    That is a 3rd party file explorer. How could we possibly help to simply remove a listing from that as it is probably hard coded into that?

    Yes, as I have done seemingly a thousand frustrating times too. And like I said, I'm not looking to remove the icon from the navigation pane. I have no icon in the navigation pane. I'm looking to remove the OneDrive folder in the move items box.

    I think you'll have to uninstall OneDrive.

    @Edwin: I have done that.

    @cereberus: It's not bordering. It is. I'm not sure why that matters to anyone but myself. The internet is filled, and I mean FILLED to capacity with people who like their computer to look and function a certain way. When all is said and done, all I did is post a simple question to see if someone can help me out because I'm not very experienced in figuring computer stuff out. If no one knows the answer then I'll have to go from there when the time comes.


    I've also found this article all over the net. Not sure it's what I want, but I don't understand what it's telling me to do anyways. There's a black box underneath the heading "important" that starts with the letters "rd". Does anyone know what it's telling you to do in that box?
